More Messages to the Future
Dear Tom and Leena,
I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.
To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,
With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.
To My Fellow Two-Spirits,
Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.
Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,
I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.
To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,
People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.
Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex,
I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.
To my daughters,
In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.
Dear Future Me,
I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.
I will turn my gas transmission into an electric car!
I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.
